Teachers and society complain that the level of morality of learners in high schools has gone down. Many learners do not seem to be answerable or accountable to their actions. It is argued that lack of acquisition and practice of moral values in learners may have acute discipline problems. Indisciplined learners may have reduced learner’s ability to concentrate, form positive relationships, drop out of school and cause considerable stress to teachers. Others get into conflict with the law either with school and parental authority due to behaviours such as stealing, fighting, or mugging among others. This is not a problem to be ignored. Good and well organized school discipline structures are essential for such learners. It is argued that those students who are accountable are less likely to influence others to strike. Teaching accountability as a moral virtue to such learners may assist them to change and manage their unacceptable behaviours.
